UVaMOX Research group
The UVaMOX team is formed by professors belonging to different fields who have been working together for more than 20 years, since the creation of the oenology studies at the Palencia Campus of the University of Valladolid. It is important to highlight that each of the members has been trained in different areas such as Oenological Chemistry, Oenological Engineering, Food Technology, Automation and Sensors, Data Analysis, Image Analysis, thus forming a multidisciplinary team specialized in different areas of the agri-food sector focused on oenology, which allows to face new projects in a global way.
During these years the research team has obtained and developed more than 30 international, national and regional competitive research projects, as well as 50 research contracts with national and international companies, for a total value of more than one and a half million euros. The most relevant results have resulted in more than 120 publications in SCI journals and 50 publications in technical journals, as well as the organization and participation in congresses, conferences and courses for the dissemination of the results obtained.
In 2017 UVaMOX obtained the status of “R&D&I Associated Unit to CSIC” through the Institute of Vine and Wine Sciences – ICVV (CSIC, Government of La Rioja, University of La Rioja) which it successfully renewed in 2020. UVaMOX obtained the status of research group of excellence with the recognition of Consolidated Research Unit (UIC) by the regional government (Junta de Castilla y León) in 2015, a status it maintains today.
The international collaboration of the group is in full expansion phase with collaborations with the University of Florence (OenoLabtech), the University of Ghent (WoodLab), the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), the University of TuGraz, the University of Talca among others, as well as with leading international companies in the development of sensors (Presens, PyroScience) or from the wine sector (Nomacorc, Clayver, TAVA or CorkSupply Portugal among others) or national (Bodegas Ramón Bilbao, Grupo Tempos Vega Sicilia, Matarromera, Barena,) as can be seen in the contracts signed by the group.
In the call DESAFIO UNIVERSIDAD-EMPRESA 2018, we obtained the first prize from the Consejería de Educación through the Fundación Universidades y Enseñanzas Superiores de Castilla y León (FUESCYL) with the project entitled “Control del oxígeno en los distintos recipientes de crianza” together with the winery Vega Sicilia. We are currently pioneers at international level in the application of oxygen measurement in the oenological field, which has allowed us to participate as invited speakers in several national and international congresses.
